Cadenabbia

In a sheltered lakeside position on the western shores of Lake Como, Cadenabbia is a super spot for a lakes and mountain holiday - with Mount Crocione behind you, you can look across the lake for wonderful views of the headland village of Bellagio and the Dolomite mountain range beyond. It has been a popular health resort with the British since Victorian times – indeed Queen Victoria herself chose to holiday in Cadenabbia and one of the country’s first Anglican churches was built here in 1891. Other notable heads of state who have sojourned here including Nicholas II, Kaiser Guglielmo II and Pope Pio XI; Mary Shelley wrote about Cadenabbia as long ago as 1844, and a few years later Guiseppe Verdi composed Traviata in the peace and quiet of Villa Ricordo (Villa Margherita). Between the 17th and 19th centuries many other villas were built here and nearby including Villa Collina, Villa Giuseppina and Villa Norella.
